# What is the greatest common multiple of 2 and 8?

Multiples are numbers greater than or equal to the number that the number will divide. So the multiples are:

5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40

8: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40

So now we can see that 40 is the least common multiple of 5 and 8.

Hope this helps. Wiki User

Greatest Common Multiple isn't a term. It's impossible to determine, as it goes on forever. It's either Least Common Multiple, or Greatest Common Factor.

Least Common Multiple is 8.

Greatest Common Factor is 2.   Wiki User
